Donnel Pumphrey breaks San Diego State career rushing record


The San Diego State Aztecs pulled out a big win over the Cal Golden Bears late Saturday night. In that game, running back Donnel Pumphrey became the best running back in school history as he broke the career rushing yards record.

Pumphrey went for 281 yards on the ground in the 45-40 victory over the Golden Bears. That pushed him to a career total of 4,651, more than previous leader Marshall Faulk.

Pumphrey is averaging 189.5 yards per game this year. If he continues to do that this year, he would end up passing names like Tony Dorsett, Ricky Williams and Archie Griffin on the the all-time career rushing list.

The Aztecs are 2-0 and have a legitimate shot of possibly finishing the season undefeated, especially after their big win over the Golden Bears. They next face off against the Northern Illinois Huskies on the road Saturday, Sept. 17.
